"Has To Be" as written by and Patrick Leonard Madonna Ciccone....
"Has To Be"
Breathe in, breathe out
I say a little prayer
How the gods above
Could be so unfair

I know there's someone out there
Waiting for me
There must be someone out there
There just has to be

Go on, go on
Don't sit there like a fool
You've graduated from
A different kind of school

[chorus, repeat]
I should be glad that I'm alive
It could have been much worse
I might have never loved at all
And never known what I am worth

How the gods above
Could be so unfair

[chorus, repeat]

    General CommentI think this song is more about not worrying about finding Mr. Right. Laying back, looking back at your life, remembering your past loves and thinking "wow...such a wild ride. Emotional drain. But I'd do it all over again...and some day I'll be there".
    This is THE perfect song after a break-up.

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song. I think that, even though Madonna had Lola and was very happy, there was also a part of her that was very lonely and very tired of searching for Mr. Right. I think that's what this song is about.

    My OpinionHas to Be from Ray of Light-The best ending of any Madonna album. Simply and sadly beautiful. Looking back, her life is crazy and brilliant-and looking forward, Madonna definitely will do it over again! That's what gives Has to Be it's life, heart and soul. The best collaboration she has done with Patrick Leonard. Rounds out my Madonna Top 10. Beautiful Song. Nice going Madge! You're brilliant!
